Name: Meatballs Difficulty: * Cooking time: 15 minutes Ingredients: - 1 lb ground beef - 1/4 cup bread crumbs - 1 egg - 5-6 tbsp diced onion - ~1 tsp garlic powder - ~2 tbsp salt - generic italian seasoning Instructions: 1. Mix all ingredients in bowl. 2. Fry in oil until brown at center. Notes: Meatballs are wonderfully simple and add can add a lot to the right pasta dish. Spaghetti just isn't quite right without them. But those little balls of meat aren't only at home in red sauces and can also be found in other dishes like Swedish meatballs. If you're wanting the meatballs to stand out more from the sauce, or want to have them stand alone, then it's entirely possible to get even more creative than I have here. I personally tend to view meatballs as mini meatloafs. Given the number of variations there are on meatloafs, that should tip you off that there's many ways to kick up the flavor of meatballs. Consider adding powdered onion soup mix or shredded dry cheeses like romano.
